Sumary of Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremony Is 9 Days Away – Here’s What Team USA Will Be Wearing:
- Ralph Lauren created functional and fresh outfits for Team USA athletes at the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics closing ceremonies, and they’ve done the same for both opening ceremony parades happening in a little over a week’s time and a month’s time respectively (can you believe it?!).
- The coolest (no pun intended) part about these uniforms is the battery-powered device with RL Cooling technology in the back of the flag bearer’s white denim jacket — and athletes will be receiving identical cooling devices after the opening ceremony parades to attach to their navy blazers.

- denim pants with a patch made from an innovative leather alternative called Mirum;
